‘Mist’ is a play that asks important questions about art and authenticity…and most importantly, answers them in no uncertain terms! It’s exhilarating in the extreme when a play strikes it rich on every conceivable level as this one does.
Maude is a 50-something unemployed bartender living in a trailer park. She has bought a painting for a few bucks from a thrift store. Despite almost trashing it, she’s now convinced it’s a lost masterpiece by Jackson Pollock worth millions. But when world-class art expert Lionel Percy flies over from New York and arrives at her trailer home in Bakersfield to authenticate the painting, he has no idea what he is about to discover. Inspired by true events involving a female long-haul truck driver and the curator of New York’s Museum of Modern Art, this hilarious and thought-provoking comedy/drama is the genuine article, one of the best plays in years. A hit in New York, London, L.A and elsewhere, we are pleased to be able to present it to a Sun Valley audience for your enjoyment as a staged reading.
This event will be presented free of charge as a fund-raiser for The Community Library; donations always welcome.
